3rd Sector Network Hub

3rd Sector Network Hub

The Third Sector Network Hub provides a conduit between local voluntary and community groups to the service delivery planning structures and strategic boards of Warrington.   

The important contribution the third sector makes to borough-wide strategies and local priorities is fully recognised through the Network Hub.  Representatives of the Network Hub, through their links to the third sector, are well placed to comment on the effectiveness of the nature, time and place of services delivered.

The Network Hub is a democratically elected group of individuals nominated to represent the sector.

It is the role of Third Sector organisations to elect individual representatives and not organisations to the Network Hub. Hub members must be either employed or volunteer within the third sector. Please scroll to the end of the page to find past minutes.
